It’s been over two months since adidas rolled out Juventus’ new home jersey prior to the season finale against Hellas Verona. The reaction to it ... wasn’t all that great, as adidas’ latest design involving Juve’s fabled black and white stripes getting a more stretched out look being something we’re not all that used to seeing in a bianconeri jersey.
We’re still awaiting the arrival of Juventus’ away jersey for the upcoming season. But, as of Wednesday morning in Turin, we’ve got Juve’s third kit. It’s both flashy and pretty damn innovative, something that gets your attention right off the bat even before you see what the actual jersey looks like.

In case you were wondering what the “ocean plastic” part of the equation exactly is, Juventus’ official website has provided a little information for us:
Combining modernity in look with cutting-edge technology, the third jersey is far more than something simply worn on the pitch.
The uniform has various shades of gray with the iconic Juventus logo standing out in yellow born from the collaboration between adidas and Parley for the Oceans.
Made from a 100% recycled polyester interlock material that incorporates Ocean Plastic ® by Parley, the new third kit fuses performance technology with eco-innovative design.
The shine of the jersey is what catches this person’s eye. You can’t say it’s totally black, but you can’t say it’s totally gray, either. The yellow lettering/numbering/Jeep logo/stripes down the side are a nice compliment to the dark complexion of the kit.
I just don’t really know what color the third kit exactly is.
As per usual, I will hold final judgement of the jersey until we actually see it in a game situation. And hey, if it doesn’t end up being all that popular of a jersey, then there’s always going to be the chance that it ends up like last season’s green third kit that wasn’t seen much at all between August 2017 and May 2018.
So there’s that, which might be nice for some of you who don’t like it.
And since I know you’re wondering what the new guy’s third jersey looks like, here it is.
You’re welcome. Now to debate about whether Juve’s newest jersey is actually nice or not.
